Position Summary

This year we celebrate the Kenan-Flagler Business School’s Centennial year. We opened our doors as the Department of Commerce in 1919 and awarded our first degrees to 12 students in 1921. Today we offer Undergraduate Business, MBA, Master of Accounting, PhD and Executive Development programs. You’ll find our 37,000 graduates in 50 U.S. states and 86 countries. Our faculty, who represent 21 countries, are world-class researchers and teachers.
While much has changed since our founding, you can trace our tradition of educational innovation and core values – which both reflect and form our unique culture – to our earliest days. Business and the liberal arts have become the foundation for our educational approach – preparing students with the enduring knowledge and skills they need to navigate a complex future. We are an institution that, for 100 years, has provided a high quality business education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, transforming the lives of students, preparing them to graduate to become extraordinary leaders in their communities, and employees helping students to achieve that goal while perpetuating the impact a Carolina education has on people’s lives and on society.

The Associate Director of Admissions and Diversity for the MAC (Masters of Accounting) program is responsible for recruiting high quality students for both the on-campus and online format. This position will have a special focus on creating programming, pathways, and incentives for under-represented populations to join the MAC Program. We have specific goals to increase the number of qualified candidates from under-represented minority groups, first generation college/university, and/or Pell Grant recipients. The Associate Director is also expected to contribute to the strategic leadership of the admissions functions as our team seeks to continuously improve the quantity, quality, diversity and career outcomes of the MAC program.

The successful growth of the MAC Program and continuing its top-ten reputation relies upon the ability of the Associate Director to successfully market and recruit with creativity and consistency. Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to effectively network is an important component of this role. Strong sales techniques are essential and will be used frequently as the Associate Director explores new and innovative ways to advance the MAC Program’s reputation and market value. The Associate Director will have three critical objectives: 1) Recruiting and nurturing high quality students for the program; 2) Ensuring that a high and growing number of diverse/under-represented prospects apply to the program; 3) Building corporate and institutional partnerships to advance admissions and diversity targets.
